Pachacamac, 30 kms south of Lima, was formerly the most important religious place of the central coast of Peru that still maintains temples dating from four different periods of pre-Inca and Inca history. Pucusana is a small fishing district 60kms south of Lima and home to a variety of wildlife such as sea lions, pelicans, peruvian boobies, cormorants, inca terns and even the elusive Humboldt Penguins (the only penguin species in Peru!).
Pick up at the hotel and drive to Pachacamac. Upon arrival, we´ll visit the site museum where we´ll see, among other treasures, the exact replica of Pachacamac (The most important God in the central coast of Peru). After we´ll explore (hop on/hop off) the temple of the Sun and other intriguing religious and administrative buildings. Next, we´ll continue our drive south to Pucusana to have lunch in front of the “Devil´s Mouth”, a 50m eroded opening on the rock created by crashing waves.
Later, we´ll walk to the dock with its colorful boats and the market with an interesting diversity of fish and seafood. After, we´ll board a small fishing boat and experience a very unique ride around the so-called “Galapagos Islands”, a wildlife refuge close to Lima.
